Guys, I'm thinking a little in advance here. I'm still waiting on the CV40/1.2E yet.....

What I'm thinking is, at some point, a wide prime. At the moment I'm vintage 28/2.8 ;)

I'm thinking around the 20mm mark, reasonably priced & not too big or heavy.

My contenders are the Voigtlander Color Skopar 21/3.5, Loxia 21/2.8 or the Tokina FiRIN 21/2 MF

I think MF would be fine. It's main use would be landscapes but I would like to do the odd bit of astro too. I rarely shoot into the sun, I'm not really bothered about sunstars, I'd prefer a filter thread of 67mm or less.... I'm also on the A7 so high ISO isn't as clean as the majority of you all.

due to the size issue, was never really interested in the Firin.

I have the CV 21...... amazing high quality lens. Very good wide open, havent even stopped it down yet, except to f4 for the sunstar effect. The lens is essentially the size of the FE 35, and a tad heavier.

I own the loxia but I would say get the Voigtländer. Doesn’t really tick the Astro box though

The Voigtlander was/is in first place. My boy is starting to get into space/astrology a bit & is thinking of buying himself a telescope with his Xmas money & savings. I thought it would be cool to get out with him at night on the south coast or a wild camp in the Brecons or something... I wasn't sure how f/3.5 would hold up in that situation? I mean it'd be rude not to do some star/MW photography wouldn't it.... I suppose I could try stitching with the CV40/1.2?

Easy decision for me, the Loxia 21. You might want to check Fred's site he did some side by side testes with a number of 21s including the new VC.

I was doing what he mentioned about simply turning off the trigger first and then back on when I was ready to use the strobe. I do like his suggestion on the custom button and assigning it to the AEL.


its funny ive been using my ttl flash for months and never really noticed that my settings wouldnt change in the evf, now that i know its a weird firmware thing it really bothers me, i dont understand why sony would change your setting and not allow it to be a choice,,,,i have setting effect on all the time as i want to see what my image will look like before shooting, and i would like that setting to stick if theres a flash being used or not,,,,very frustrating now to have to preview it with a button first,,,,i have assigned it to the trash button, hope to test it out soon in a in the field sittutation,,,

Can anyone recommend software to recover data from a corrupted Sandisk card? I've tried a few programs and they can see the files but most require a purchase to recover. Thanks.

Disregard: I used Photrec to recover the files. Thank goodness because some of them were for a client.

This is one of the images on my corrupted SD card that I'm happy I recovered:

After finishing up some interior images of Mission San Juan, I captured this long exposure shot of the sunset using the SR app. Single exposure using the Canon 24mm TS-E.

An image from Mt. Rainier National Park. The Paradise River just above Narada Falls. The 16-35 GM at 16mm gave the look I was going for, and got just enough of the sky and trees...the B18 was just that touch too narrow...and the CV12 was too wide...

Such a cool image. What did the client think, did you deliver that one?

Did you figure out what caused the SD card to get corrupted? I noticed on my cards that the brass connections all look like they are wearing a lot, and I wondered if that needs to be cleaned or do they all need to be replaced, even the newer ones all show signs of wear on the contacts. Never had that issue with CF cards...

Thanks Travis! I haven’t shown the client the image yet. This one wasn’t in scope to the other documentary work I was doing for them. If they are interested, I will license it to them or they can order a print directly.

Yeah I’m not sure what happened. Maybe I turned off the camera while the last image was being written to the card. I wonder if I should throw the card away and get a new one? Thankfully the card didn’t have the bulk of client images and I’m glad I was able to recover them including the one above. Be careful about static electricity too when moving the card to the card reader.

Really enjoyed your last winter image. Nicely framed and edited.

Me personally...if a card went bad like that and I was able to recover the files...I would cut my losses and replace that card, I would be so suspect of it doing it again...the one that I had go bad was when the card was too full and could not write the last files to the card...I was able to save all the files on that card, but then that card wouldn't work the next time I put it in the camera...it went right in the trash.

Thanks. It was so cool to shoot winter scenes like that...
